Sharing the details from our holiday hot chocolate bar. Find out how to create your own with complete source list and chalkboard instructions.
Last week I shared the hot cocoa station (aka hot chocolate bar) I put together for the holiday season. As promised, I’m sharing the details of that project with you today. Be sure to grab a cup of deliciousness for yourself while you read on!
Before I get to the DIY details and source list, here are a few more photos to refresh your memory…

Hot Chocolate Bar Projects and Source List

DIY Framed Chalkboards
To make the chalkboards, I painted the wooden picture frames I found in our storage room white. Next, I cut a piece of thin wood to fit each opening, then painted them out in chalkboard paint.
Before you use your newly created chalkboard, prime the surface by rubbing with a piece of chalk on its side and then wiping with a dry rag. It prevents the first drawing from being permanently etched on the surface.
Hot Chocolate Party Favours
For the to-go pouches, I simply filled a cellophane bag with hot chocolate mix, white and dark chocolate chips and a large marshmallow. Then I tied it up with ribbon.
Next, I glued ribbon around the cup, leaving enough room to stick the straw through.
